Re: Cheap backing or substitute
Hmm. I have to admit I've never considered the cost of backing. But I'm pretty sure one of the shops I go to charges something like a nickel a foot. Also, my last three or four line purchases were from one shop where they provide the backing for free if you buy the line from them, so I haven't paid for backing in a while.
So, I guess I have to ask, just how expensive is backing?
I mean, I'm pretty sure that spectra or power braid would be more expensive than the Dacron stuff they put on my reels, or am I wrong?
